Golden Egg Plant or Aubergine
The Golden Egg Plant is an annual of the same family as the tomato, potato, eggplant etc. It is thought that the original plant came from the Malay Peninsula and had purple skin. This cultivar was known to be grown by Thomas Jefferson in the late 1700’s.
This plant has spread all over the world and has several names — Guinea Squash (England), Aubergine (France), Berinjela (Portuguese), Berenjena (Spanish) and Terong (Indonesian).
A tropical plant, it thrives both indoors and outdoors, depending on the climate. A shrub growing to 1 metre (39in) it will produce 10 to 30 fruits in a season. Initially, the fruit is white but changes to yellow as it ripens. The fruit is edible and tastes like a melon but immature fruit can be bitter. It can be baked, steamed or fried, used in jams and condiments or eaten raw after removing the skin.
An excellent plant to brighten up the garden and provide a talking point.
